They are both crawling everywhere - Vivian does the commando crawl and Emmeline does the one legged shuffle (or wounded solider crawl) as Ben and I call it. They have 3 teeth between them with more about to come through shortly. They are so engaging with us and each other, crawling onto our laps, playing peekaboo with each other and their squeals of delight brighten our house everyday.
We have had visits from Nannie & Poppy and the Kalgoorlie crew in November and we drove up to Kalgoorlie not too long ago. The girls did really well in the car considering it's a 6 hour drive! We are off the Victoria next month to visit Nannie & Poppy and catch up with a few friends who have yet to meet the girls so we are certainly looking forward to showing them off :)
The girls have finished off their second round of Little Ducks swimming lessons and with the warm weather we are in the pool at home quite a bit and they love it. Emmeline especially gets excited and starts waving her arms as soon as we head towards the pool. They have also graduated to the big bath now and think that's great fun. Lots of splashing and exploring to be done now they can move around.
Christmas was wonderful and very relaxing. Certainly a time to reflect back on the year and shake our heads in wonder at how much our lives have changed. We still look at each other in amazement at how we got so lucky.
Here are some updated pics for you all xxx
